    Welcome to the community @Angiebabe
    Bowel incontinence can be a really difficult thing to deal with but there are treatments that can help you live with it, take a look at the NHS website here.

    "Treatment can help improve incontinence and reduce the impact it has on your life. The best treatment for you depends on what's causing the problem.

    Treatments for bowel incontinence include:

    • continence products – such as pads you wear in your underwear or small plugs you put in your bottom
    • changes to your diet – such as avoiding foods that make diarrhoea worse
    • medicines to reduce constipation or diarrhoea
    • exercises to strengthen the muscles used to control your bowels – called pelvic floor exercises

    Surgery may be considered if other treatments don't help.

    Read more about treatments for bowel incontinence."
